Goal

How is the Global Supervisor support for document approvals setup?

Certain employees have the need to approve purchase requisitions in more
than one business organization (For example, the controller approves requisitions
in both the United States and the United Kingdom). The controller was assigned
one user name in the SysAdmin module. This user name was assigned to that
person's United States HR person record. That user was then given a United States
and United Kingdom iProcurement responsibility. The user was able to approve the
United States requisitions just fine but was unable to approve United Kingdom requisitions.

As a test, user was given a second user name and assigned it to the person's
United Kingdom person record and gave the person the same two iProcurement
responsibilities. This time, the user could approve UK requisitions, but not US.

Giving users more than one user name is not an option - is there a way that
users can be set up so that they can approve requisitions in multiple business
organizations using one login? Since the user name is assigned to an HR
person record it is not clear if this can be accomplished.
